Major League Baseball Player. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound left-handed hitter was a $60,000 bonus baby with the New York Yankees who didn't live up to expectations. The highly touted first baseman signed right out of high school in 1954 and got one hit, a single, in five at-bats in 1954. The following year he was hitless in two at-bats. He didn't return to the big leagues until 1962, when he was 0 for 16 with the Los Angeles Angels. For his career, he batted .043 with one walk and eight strikeouts in 23 at-bats. (bio by: Ron Coons)
